Elektrische en Magnetische Velden

Description

The course covers Maxwell’s theory of time-dependent electromagnetic field, wave theory of light, and propagation of electromagnetic waves in media.

Course objectives

  • To provide students with a working knowledge of electromagnetism through Maxwell’s equations using the tools of vector calculus. – To establish the unifying connections between seemingly different phenomena in nature such as electromagnetic induction and optics. – To describe the basic properties of wave propagation, diffraction and interference. – To enhance problem-solving and mathematical skills by requiring students to apply their mathematical skills and physics understanding to a variety of situations and systems.
